Fruit juice is one of the most popular drinks, which requires strict processing conditions to ensure its quality, especially to prevent enzymatic browning and turbidity loss. In this work, a new strategy for the preparation of composite nanofibers for juice clarification and anti-browning control was proposed. The strategy used microfluidic spinning to combine Fucoxanthin (Fx), hydroxypropyl-γ-cyclodextrin (HP-γ-CD) and polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) to prepare Fx/HP-γ-CD-PVP (PCF) nanofibers, which not only reflected the excellent antioxidant properties of cyclodextrin-wrapped Fx, but also achieved a more optimized juice clarification agent dosage.
